One Shots: Death by tentacles


Massively reader The Platypus knows the secret behind taking a good One Shots entry: a good death! He sent in this amazing shot from The Secret World with a quick note:
Hey Massively -- long-time reader The Platypus here! Two friends and I decided to three-man the Polaris dungeon in The Secret World last night, and while it went more smoothly than I imagined it would, we still had a little trouble with the Ur-Draug (TSW's Cthulhu analogue). As I was dying the first time and the creeping inevitability of my fate overcame me, I did the only logical thing I could do with the last few seconds of life: I took a screenshot! Enjoy!
Tentacles past the break. Hit it!

This Allods Online entry grabbed me because it's a deceptively simple landscape shot, and yet the lighting just pulls you in and makes you wonder what's past the horizon. Veteran One Shots contributor Kessendara delivered to us this image, noting it features a "sunset in the dangerous jungles of Asee-Teph."

Our last image also comes from a repeat One Shots participant, Sharvis. It spotlights the Jade Sea in Guild Wars, a game that has been sadly dwarfed by its inbound sibling for a few years now. Might we see a return to Cantha in a future expansion of Guild Wars 2? Fingers crossed!

Keep those One Shots coming! Remember, hide that UI, make 'em pretty and clear, and hey, why not pick games we don't see every day?

Want to be featured in a future edition of One Shots? Send your favorite MMO screenshots to, and don't forget to include your name, the name of the game, and a description of the scene. Large, colorful, UI-free shots that tell a story and really show off the game make for the best images. Look ma, we brought back One Shots!
